The JetPack is an Arduino Wireless programming shield + a motor shield that fits onto an Arduino microcontroller. Now your arduino can be effortlessly programmed over Bluetooth from your PC, receive sensor data etc from your project wirelessly. It additionally has a motor driver for driving 2 DC motors or a stepper motor. No more plugging in your Arduino into your PC and running behind bots. JetPack brings you over the air firmware upgrade and over the air debugging to make Arduino development easy and fun in any environment.
Fastest way to build Robots/Cars
JetPack has a motor driver IC. Just add your motors and wheels and your robot is ready to go.
Compact and access to all Arduino pins
We have extended all Arduino pins to the shield. You can even stack another shield on top of this. Now make your Arduino projects wireless! and create incredible projects.
Complete Kit available. Kickstarter Only!
Worried about where to start? or Want to jump into your first wireless project directly? We are shipping our Rover kit for wireless fun, just for you! We used the same one for building the toys used in the video. This kit includes:
- Acrylic Base
- 4x Geared DC motor
- Wheel, Motor positioning Stencil
- Arduino Uno Compatible board
- JetPack Shield
- Mounting Screws
- Connecting Wires
All Arduino enthusiasts out there know how annoying it is to have to plug in your Arduino project into a computer every time they have to upload a sketch, debug or read some information over serial monitor, especially if the field where the project is employed doesn’t make it any easier(like an Arduino monitoring the vitals of a greenhouse. You always can’t have wires dangling around if you’re uploading sketches, debugging in the field ). The problem is further aggravated if you’re working on mobile robotics projects. You’ll have to let your robot loose, run behind it, bring it back to the computer to make changes in the code, debug etc.
JetPack solves just this and is simply perfect for any Arduino project, especially robotic projects. You can make programming Arduino totally hassle free, remotely monitor data in real time additionally we are providing motor drivers with which you can run two DC motors or a stepper motor. Grab your JetPacks for wireless programming!

What can you make?
You can build real fun projects with a Bluetooth Arduino.
Where we're at?
Development of the Shield is done! For the initial proof of concept a prototype was developed.
This is our final version
Risks and challenges
JetPack is ready and tested so there are no risks related to product development here.
Regarding manufacturing, we have developed other boards with the same manufacturer so we believe things should move without delay. We also have prior Kickstarter experience, this has helped us decide the best shipping method for our backers.
Developing a hardware product involves many challenges. If we face any unexpected problems we will keep our backers informed and would arrive at the best solution in the least time.
